The Mt. Pleasant High School boys track team competed at the ISU meet. Coach Mitch Anderson provided us with the results. “Spencer had a solid race for his highest finish this season indoors. Zoom had a personal best in the long jump to leap over 20 feet which is a nice mark to achieve. Tonight was a great opportunity for some Panthers but we look forward to our last meet Friday at Pella where the entire team will compete and then beginning our outdoor schedule.”
